Ronald Reagan was an actor and became President. Arnold Schwarzenegger was an actor and became Governor of California. Jesse Ventura was a pro wrestler and became Governor of Minnesota. Donald Trump was an all around piece of shit human being and became President.
This should show that anybody can actually become an important person in politics. You can literally be whatever you want to be when you grow up.
The problem is, you should be able to know what you’re doing when you become whatever it is you want to become. Hey, I’d love to be a millionaire, but if I became one I wouldn’t know how to act. I’d wind up owning a trailer park exclusively for half-million dollar trailers and in the very center of it would be a Taco Bell. That’s not how a responsible millionaire acts.
We don’t have many stipulations on things, all the way up to being the leader of the “greatest” country on earth. All you have to do is get the most votes… or wait… suck the most coc… wait… I’m not sure. But it now seems that anybody can become President, and that scares me. There are people who just shouldn’t hold that office. On the flip side, if just anybody could hold it, then maybe it isn’t that great a position to hold.
Regardless, the trend continues today with gold medal Olympian and former man, Caitlyn Jenner. She said recently that she wants to run for office one day.
“I have considered it. I like the political side of it,” she said. “The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. Over the next six months or so, I gotta find out where I can do a better job… Yea, but I would look for a senatorial run.”
Cool, good luck to her. Hopefully she’ll look into what actually goes on in that role before running. Maybe she’ll be good, maybe she won’t. Regardless of how good she is, I hope she does right by the people she represents.
But, that isn’t really the strange news. No, a woman who used to be a man, who is running for senate, isn’t the strange news.
